On June 16, James Joyce aficionados the world over celebrated Bloomsday. Except us. We screwed up. I think it is also Van Morrison's b-day. On year's past we have had parties or AT LEAST A DRINK! But this year in our dotage it slipped right past. The day is named after the main character an everyman and advertising salesman named Leopold Bloom, of Joyce's most excellent novel Ulysses. The entirety of this ginormous, book recounts one ordinary day, June 16, 1904, as various characters go about their ways--many en route to a funeral in Dublin.

It is awesome. I've told you my Guinness Fleagh stories right?
